    Not a build yet, but I have a question for the car guys here.

    I was inspired by Scott's widow Maker camaro and now have an idea for a special build of my own... Question for the car modeling guys... Is there a 2011 American muscle car model, preferably Camaro or Challenger available? If not, is there any visual difference between a 2010 and 2011 Camaro SS?

The kit itself looks pretty nice but the decal sheet is in bad shape, not that I was ever a fan of the Cartoon Network cars anyways. Where would be...

    Reserving this space... Since I have a few other builds for other GBs and special themes, I needed to decide on a build quickly for the '46+ GB. This should be a fairly straight forward build, hopefully lightning quick.

    How's this for irony? The plaque I won at last weekends model show for best military model just fell over onto the very model that earned me that award, the F-16I Sufa... ::) Knocked a few pylons loose and as well as some of the ordnance, that can be fixed easy enough, did crack the main...
